Peanut sauce is, hands down, my favorite dipping sauce or sauce for noodles. I have a recipe for a Thai Peanut Sauce that contains coconut milk and simmers on the stove.

This Vietnamese Peanut Sauce, though, is easier than the Thai one. It requires only 6 common, easy-to-find ingredients that are simply stirred together. There is no cooking at all!

I’ve got the perfect recipe for vegan summer rolls to go with this easy 6 ingredient peanut sauce, too.
